My birthday boy!

My first little love turns 6 today. Yesterday he repeatedly told me, "This is the last day I'll ever be 5!" I was ready to cry about it by the last time he said it. We started off the day with birthday pumpkin muffins, then Jonathan, Miles and I went to have lunch and take cupcakes at Elijah's school. The celebration will continue tonight with his favorite dinner - tacos - and then we'll have a party Saturday.
No one knows how it is that with one glance a boy can break through into a girl's heart.

This boy broke through into my heart six years ago. What a blessing he has been. My prayer with him this morning was one of thankfulness for his life and that he will love God every day of it.

Happy birthday, Elijah P.! I'll love you forever, bunches and bunches!

Happy 6th Birthday Elijah!!

Kristin, welcome to the world of 6 year olds. It's wonderful. Molly turning 6 in October was very emotional for me, that age just feels so big. I hope Elijah has enjoys his birthday tacos and has fun at his party on Saturday. The pictures are wonderful!
